Day Six: Islamabad; News for Departure to Skardu

Today, I battled the heat, and ventured out to deliver some documents to ATP at their office in G9/1 Sector of Islamabad. I found out that we will be flying to Skardu (an hour flight as opposed to a 22 hour drive; sometimes hindered by mudslides; a probable issue considering the fact that it has been raining for the past week in Skardu) on the 7th of June and that I should prepare my bags so that they could be sent ahead by road to Skardu. Afterwards, I went to a few banks to break my large 5000PKR notes into 100 notes (needed for tipping porters) and then sorted my bags in my room for their journey to Skardu.
